Just in the Time for the Holidays – Thanksgiving Pie Flavors!

There are plenty of things to love about Thanksgiving, from the message of the holiday to the opportunity to sit down with your family and enjoy the lovely fall weather. And while it’s not the most important part of the holiday, the delicious pies make the holiday celebration even better. From classics such as pumpkin, pecan, and apple to more unusual pie flavors, there is truly something for everybody to enjoy. In celebration of the season, here’s a look at pie flavors from the classic to the more experimental, and the delicious ingredients that go into the perfect pie recipes.


Pumpkin pie is perhaps the most classic of all pie flavors and contains lots of delicious ingredients to give it that instantly recognizable character. The typical pumpkin pie spice is made up of a few key ingredients – cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. When creating a pumpkin pie (or one of the many products that feature pumpkin pie flavors, from lattes to cookies), there are various flavor ingredients that can be used to recreate these spices.


Bear in mind that pumpkin itself is actually not the most recognizable of the flavors used to recreate pumpkin pie spice flavors, and it is the flavor ingredients that make a big difference in recreating the pumpkin flavor profile. Whether you are making a pumpkin spice flavored syrup for coffee or a dessert mix, be cautious in choosing the right flavor ingredients.


For example, cinnamon flavor can easily added to a product through the use of Advanced Biotech’s Natural Cinnamon Extract or Natural Cinnamic Aldehyde, while ginger can enhance a product through the use of Organic Ginger Extract.  Cinnamon also features prominently in apple pie and many other pie flavors. It can truly be said to be the spice flavor of the season for the number of products it appears in!


Some other delicious pie flavors include cream pies (such as banana and chocolate); sweet potato pie; and even special sweet treats such as Mississippi Mud Pie. Each of them features unique flavor notes and uses different flavor ingredients to produce an unusual twist. Also, be sure to explore the world of regional favorites such as pecan pie, which feature special nutty flavor notes in addition to notes such as burnt sugar that make them special. This holiday season, explore the world of pies and what makes them special through the use of Advanced Biotech’s all-natural flavor ingredients.
